Worried about stains on the plate?

Oh, kitchen towels are so helpful! From cleaning the dirt to wiping up fruits and vegetables. But why are they so underrated? 

Kitchen towels may seem simple as an accessory, but for the one who loves cooking and baking, this is different. It is the most used and useful item out there. The texture of kitchen towels is supposed to be tough enough to handle all the rubbing and scrubbing. It should also be soft enough to absorb the spills and be kind to our hands.

Considering you have bought a new set of kitchen towels after reading this article, always remember to wash them before use. Pre-washing the product helps it to attain its maximum absorbency and be soft to the touch. Also, in some cases, the colour sticks to the fabric, making the colour fade during the initial wash. This is mostly found in silicone-coated unnatural fabrics. So machine wash can get tricky with those. 

Don’t forget to keep the towel dry or else the moisture becomes a breeding spot for fungus and bacteria. Hanging them out in the sun to get them dry would help with proper air circulation. Or, for some, even the door handle would work.

A common problem with bath towels made of poor-quality cotton is that they shrink and become thinner after a few washes. This is why thorough cotton checks on brands are necessary.

Guide to cleaning your Cotton Floor Cushions

Washing cushions could be a hassle sometimes. Though there are cushions that have separate covers that are considered easy to take out for a wash than those that are stitched up completely, keeping your cushions clean takes some effort.

General Cleaning

The traditional method of washing by tossing cushions in the machine may not be the best option for cleaning your floor cushions that are stitched up completely. If you are in that space of wondering what you can do to get floor cushions cleaned up, a general cleaning tip would be to vacuum them first. Vacuuming the cushions with an upholstery attachment regularly will remove any dirt, hair, or fur that get camouflaged with the cushion. Once you vacuum them be sure to use a damp sponge with some detergent and water to give the cushion a gentle wipe, spray some air refresher over it to give it some fragrance.

A majority of the cushion stains are caused by spills and accidents in the home. The method of cleaning the stains depends on what you have spilled and what fabric you have spilled it on. The key to removing any stain and saving your cushion is to deal with it as soon as possible. Stains that are given proper treatment at the right time helps to avoid a dirt spot in the future.

Dealing with Stains

Any fresh spills need to be scooped up immediately from the surface of the cushion, use a dry white cloth to blot out the stains and absorb as much as you can. Dampen another white cloth with some cool water to dab over the stain, work your way outside-in to avoid spreading the stain on the cushion. 

Many stains get cleaned up by using just water. However, if that doesn’t do the job. You can dissolve some detergent in water or use some diluted stain remover to spray over the stain to repeat the dabbing processing before wiping it off with another clean cloth. Again, remember to work your way outside-in to avoid any spreading. Be careful not to use too much detergent, as you will need to get it off your cushion later.

Stubborn Stains

Some stubborn stains caused by chewing gum, ink, or oil might be a bit difficult to clean off from the cushions. Some home remedies might work. However, it is best to leave it for the professionals. Giving your cushions to the dry-cleaning services to have a look at the tough stains is worth the expense as they will be better judges of getting rid of the tough stubborn stains. Also ensure that you explain everything about the stain to the professions – the duration of the stain, the cause of the stain, etc. This would make it easier for them to provide the right treatment and restore it to its best condition. And always remember not to use bleach to brighten your cushions fabrics as this could weaken the fabric and cause it to lose its integrity.
